About us

We love cities!

A love letter to the city! It might sound a little unusual, but it comes from the heart. The city is the source of our inspiration. Every location in the city has a history and its own unique story. Our ambition is to create a fitting concept to carry that history forward into the future. Not alone, but in partnership with policymakers, investors, businesses, property owners and local residents. With this approach we deliver projects that make a real difference for the city.

SENS, a passionate team

Open, inquisitive, creative and always surprising. People with a simple love of cities and a passion for their profession. We are an important partner in many development and regeneration projects for institutional and private investors from the Netherlands and elsewhere. We operate in the urban areas of the Netherlands, with a focus on the economic powerhouse of the greater Randstad conurbation. Our varied portfolio includes projects that embody every characteristic and aspect of a city: homes, shops, hotels, leisure, offices and parking.
